Many people have been pointing out how the 2020 elections brought many firsts in the history of the United States. We’ve got the first woman vice president, who also happens to be the first-ever Black woman to hold the position. We’ve also got a first lady that plans to continue working a full-time job, and among the many firsts, we’ve also got the first-ever rescue dog that will live in the White House. Yes, you read that right!
The adorable dog named Major has been a part of the Biden family for a few years now. He came to the Delaware Humane Association when he was just a small baby dog alongside five of his siblings, and Joe and Jill Biden’s daughter showed the pair a litter of puppies that needed to be temporarily homed.
The dog will now be the first-ever rescue dog that will live in the White House – and we must admit that we immediately fell in love with Major!
Major was adopted from the Delaware Humane Association back in 2018. This is what the Delaware Humane Association wrote on Facebook back in November 2018:
“Today is Major’s lucky day! Not only did Major find his forever home, but he got adopted by Vice President Joe Biden & Dr. Jill Biden! The Bidens have gotten to know Major while fostering him and are now ready to make the adoption official. Best of luck and thank you for being one of our Friends for life!”
The Bidens also have another dog named Champ, and he has been with the family for more than a decade.
Champ and Major are now best friends, and having two dogs speaks a lot about a family!
